Leicester hardcore brutes SURRENDER THE COAST announce new EP; premiere new video

Friday 12th December, 2014

Up-and-coming Leicester hardcore brutes SURRENDER THE COAST are proud to announce their new EP Lost Souls, due for release on Sunday February 22nd; their first release via Redfield Digital. To celebrate the news, the band released their smashing brand-new title track video exclusively via Kerrang



Pre-order Lost Souls via iTunes and Amazon.

Treading the unrefined lines between metal, punk, and hardcore, Surrender The Coast serve up a savage helping of riffs, throat-ripping double vocals and a no-fucks-given attitude.

Following the success that led the band to Download 2013 as well as playing alongside Feed The Rhino, Surrender The Coast race through the unrelenting Lost Souls. Simple principles, well done – this is back to basics heavy music, where strong songwriting and kickass guitarwork combine to create a monstrous beast of a mini-album.

The soundtrack to your anger, Lost Souls does as the name suggests. From the vicious eponymous opening track, to the unsettling, creeping aggression of Thrones, this is an album full of bilious rage, and not without justification – like all great heavy albums, this is a release with a message, of self-reliance, individuality, and non-conformance.

Keep your ears and eyes out for STC playing near you early next year.

Lost Souls tracklisting:

1. Aurora Skies
2. Lost Souls
3. Thrones
4. Dreamcatcher
5. Blissful Ignorance
6. Southpaw
7. Wings
8. Archetype
